The more child porn we find, the more we look away. The media and Pentagon in cahoots?Wikileaks had been going to bat lately with reports that: “Several dozen Pentagon officials and contractors with high-level security clearances had allegedly been caught buying or downloading child pornography.” What of course makes this all rather intriguing is the timing of the report and incredulously the attention or the lack of attention given by other media tabloids and investigators themselves…

On the surface one has to wonder if there is something about the timing of these report that seems as suspicious as the actions it describes. Does this not at least appear to be the government-sponsored version of a Wikileak: one that divulges a secret that seems almost too dark to be taken seriously, yet is simultaneously revealing of absolutey nothing tangible?

Yahoo News: A 2006 Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigation into the purchase of child pornography  online turned up more than 250 civilian and military employees of the Defense Department — including some with the highest available security clearance — who  used credit cards or PayPal to purchase images of children in sexual situations. But the Pentagon investigated only a handful of the cases, Defense Department records show.

But new Project Flicker investigative reports obtained by The Upshot through the Freedom of Information Act, which you can read here, show that DCIS investigators identified 264 Defense employees or contractors who had purchased child pornography online. Astonishingly, nine of those had “Top Secret Sensitive Compartmentalized Information” security clearances, meaning they had access to the nation’s most sensitive secrets.

More telling, the Huffington Post reports: the Pentagon investigated only a handful of the cases, Defense Department records show. Which begs the question why only a handful and why not a crateful? This is child porn after all, the supposed elixir of tabloid moral indignation…

Of course all we can say in light for what passes as regular entertainment and the overt sexualization of young women as barely arrived teenagers, something foul is going on in the military, that or the fact that we should be prepare ourselves for an impending mission statement called- Operation Porno Freedom.

So much for being bent whether a soldier is gay or not and so much for looking away if that soldier’s boss is indiscriminately flicking through child porn.

So let’s remember kids, it’s all right if a young woman decides to upgrade her breasts and we have her head on the media platter, but it’s another hushed thing if the folks at the pentagon are secretly watching that young woman’s younger sister as she steps out of the shower in the raw. Then it’s time to keep quiet…
